Swelling is a condition in which excess water (unmetabolized water) has accumulated in the body and the surface of the body. "Water" is said to account for about 60-70% of the body. In the blood, about 90% of the plasma (liquid part of the blood) is said to be water, and it is indispensable for life activities, such as spreading nutrients throughout the body and regulating body temperature. However, if this water patrol is stuck and accumulated in the body, it may change completely, and it may cause a malfunction. In Chinese medicine, this situation is called "water retention". "Water retention" is a state in which water metabolism is poor and water discharge is stagnant, as written.
Even if it is said that edema (swelling) in one bite, it varies from mild to severe. My face is swollen easily in the morning. From such things, there is a terrible edema in the whole body in renal failure. If it gets worse, ascites may accumulate, or pleural efusers may accumulate and you may have difficulty breathing.
Especially common symptoms include swelling feet in the afternoon, thick lower body, and swelling face when you wake up in the morning. The cause of this type of swelling is not causes of the outside world, such as allergies and changes in temperature, but moisture that occurs in the body. This is called "internal moisture". Swelling occurs when this three-impatience vaporization stops functioning smoothly, the flow of body fluids is blocked, and internal moisture accumulates. Therefore, swelling is a symptom that is closely related to the spleen, lung, kidney, liver of the five organs. In traditional medicine, swelling is eliminated by improving the function of these visceral organs.
We think about which energy line of the whole body should be approached mainly by the symptom spleen, lung, kidney, liver and deep relation to the spleen, lung, kidney, liver of the five organs, and whether the symptoms of swelling are concentrated a lot in which part of the body, and the treatment of the whole body is done.
